NYC Councilman threatens NYPD: “We’re not the only ones who can bleed”

I think he means the NYPD. He might mean white people generally, whom he’s previously expressed a desire to slap “just for my mental health.”

There’s no consequences for killing a black person. I am fed-up. I’m not asking my people to do anything passive anymore. We’re going to sit here and we’re going to go in there, and we’re going to pray, we’re going to march, we’re going to do all of that stuff and then we’re going to sit down, and if they don’t respond to none of that, don’t ask us to ask our people to be peaceful while they are being murdered. We’re not the only ones that can bleed.

He’s reacting here to the cops having fired 50 times on three unarmed men inside a car in Queens last week. Two of the victims were black; one of them died. Of the five cops who fired, two are black, two are white, and one is Hispanic, although one of the white cops accounted for 31 of the 50 shots. The father of the man who was killed says he doesn’t think it was racially motivated, but Reverends Jackson and Sharpton are already on the scene.

As for Barron, he’s a former Black Panther who doesn’t salute the flag, believes non-citizens should vote, and once played host to Zimbabwean Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe when he visited the city. Lucky for him he’s got … absolute moral authority.

Oh, and he said this the other day about Mayor Mike Bloomberg:

“It’s still Giuliani time. The mayor will say he’s sorry. He’ll show up to funerals. But he doesn’t change policy. Don’t ask me to be peaceful when they are the ones being murderers.”

Bloomberg’s reaction?
